Chapter 599: Curtis Is Going to Shed Skin Again
Looking at how she was gobbling up the fruit, Bai Qingqing couldn’t help but swallow her saliva. She asked, “How does it taste?”
“Mm, mm.” Molly nodded and replied in a m.u.f.fled voice. After swallowing it down, she exclaimed, “Yummy, really yummy!”
This made Bai Qingqing feel even more greedy for it. She smacked her lips.
Molly was about to eat another one when Bai Qingqing hurriedly stopped her. “Don’t. Wait a while and see what’s the effect like first. What if you eat too much and the effects are too potent?”
Upon hearing this, Molly stopped. “In that case, I’ll eat another one tomorrow.”
Bai Qingqing responded as she let out evil laughter in her heart. Hehehe, if it didn’t have any effects, she must try one for herself.
There were still tear streaks on Molly’s face, and her eyes were red as a rabbit’s. Bai Qingqing said, “Now that you’ve eaten the horned melon, you should stop crying. If you cry more, you’ll probably turn into a rabbit beastman.”
Molly smiled through her tears. “Is there such a thing as rabbit beastman? I’ve only eaten a wild rabbit before.”
“I made that up. Who knows if they exist.” As Bai Qingqing spoke, she held out the tree branch with fruits hanging from it. “A male asked me to give you this. Look, you do have admirers.”
Molly took it from her immediately and plucked off one to toss to Bai Qingqing, then plucked another one and casually rubbed it on her skirt, before chomping on it.
“Who is it?”
Bai Qingqing thought for a moment. “I don’t know him. A two-striped beastman. Oh right, part of his left ear is missing.”
“Oh, him.” Molly revealed a heartened smile. “He’s a young male who didn’t take part in the duels. I’m planning on becoming mates with him in the future.”
“In the future?” Bai Qingqing asked, “Why not now?”
Molly propped up her chin with her hand and gazed towards a large tree. “I want my first mate to be someone I’m very, very fond of.”
Bai Qingqing followed her gaze and felt her head ache.
This la.s.s was still thinking about Alva!
Molly, who could guess what was on Bai Qingqing’s mind, shook her head and said, “At the very least, he can’t be casual about relations.h.i.+ps and didn’t take part in yesterday’s duels to vie for a mate. I’ve never lacked admirers and don’t care for those males who get a spouse for the sake of getting a spouse. Also, I don’t want a male to pursue me because of my appearance. In any case, since you said you wouldn’t accept him, I still stand a chance.”
Bai Qingqing shrugged. “So long as it makes you happy.”
In any case, after becoming spouses, the male would be devoted to his mate. Molly did have the capital to be wilful.
Three days later, Winston finally came back leading a pack of 40 to 50 tiger beastmen.
The village instantly bustled with life, with tiger roars reverberating around the place, waking Curtis up from his slumber.
Curtis stretched lazily, then squeezed his tail into the third story, before lowering it from the entrance of the tree hole like a gluttonous snake.
Bai Qingqing, lying on her belly as she watched the fun from the second story entrance, suddenly saw a tail lower before her eyes. She turned around in delight and exclaimed, “You’re finally awake! You’ve been asleep for nearly four days. Why did you sleep for so long this time?”
Curtis slithered towards her and coiled himself around her body, then transformed into a human and whispered by her ear. “You’re going to have new clothes to wear soon.”
“Mm?” Bai Qingqing froze, then widened her eyes. “You mean…”
Before she finished speaking, her voice was blocked out. Curtis’s tongue had squirmed into her mouth and was now curled around her tongue.
Retracting his tongue, Curtis placed a slim, long, and icy finger on Bai Qingqing’s lips. “Our secret.”
“Okay.” Bai Qingqing nodded solemnly.
Curtis would be in danger if he was attacked while he was shedding his skin, so they must stay tight-lipped about this.
After the newly joined tiger beastmen were a.s.signed accommodation by the tribal head, Winston returned to the tree hole.
